Hi, your best bet will be to get a leak detection kit which basically includes some dye and a black light. You add the dye to the coolant, run the car for a bit, and then use the black light to determine where the leak is coming from, it will show up in a fluorescent color. Good luck!

Have put coolant in the car, but it seems to be leaking out. What could be the problem?


Hello: You really need to pressure check the system to determine where the leak is. You can purchase a pressure pump at a parts store or take car to a repair facility. It could be one of several things causing the leak: any of the rubber hoses, radiator, water pump, head gasket, freeze plug(s), heater core. A pressure check would show the area of leakage.

Water leak underneth 93 ford thunder bird. Don't seem to be coming from the radiar. It's leaking some where near the crank shaft. I really can pin point it yet.


Sounds like it's leaking from the water pump. There are weep holes in the water pump and when the bearing in the water pump has worn out, coolant will start to leak from the holes.

Replace the water pump after you inspected it for any signs of leak. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

My 1990 toyota corolla is getting hot really fast - i fill radiator up and after 5-10 min the water has evaporated - it appears to be leaking somewhere around the right side of engine (facing front of car)...


Well there are only 3 things that could have gone wrong.

1. Radiator Leak - this means the radiator has developed a hole with via corrosion of the metal parts of simply integrity failure of the plastic parts of the radiator.
2. Hose leak - this could be a hole in 1 of 2 hoses that connects the engine to the radiator. Or it can also be a leak where the hose connects to the radiator (clamp Failure).
3. Water Pump breakdown - this is where the gasket in the water pump has failed and is leaking out the water rather than pumping it.

All the problems above has different ways of diagnosing. but we can probably narrow it down.

1. if the leak is near the radiator then it could be a hose connection, hose breakage or Radiator hole.

2. if the leak is nearer the engine then check the other end of the hose and if its not there then it could only be the water pump is leaking. You can check this if there are water stains on the water pump. The water pump on a 1990 corolla is mechanical turned also by a fan belt. Look for a pulley that has a hose connected to the radiator and that would be the water pump.

Water leak. I dont think its the water pump but the leak is really close to the water pump


could be a hose but most likely its leaking water out of the weep hole in the bottom of the pump housing

I think engine coolant is leaking from the water pump. how do I know if its the pump or the seal


Technically, the 'pump' will not leak. A seal will leak and a gasket will leak. When someone says their water punp is leaking, they are really referring to a water pump seal or gasket or the hose that attaches to it.

You can use certain products to seal this type leak if it is small. However, it is only delaying the inevitable - you will eventually have to replace the pump. Find "Stop Leak" at fine auto parts stores in your community.

I have a problem with my heater blowing cold when i let off the gas


the water pump is shot or you are really low on coolant, check the fluid level, if it's low fill it and pressure test it to find the leaks. if it's not low and you can't find any leaks, replace the water pump

My 98 chrysler cirrus is lesking water and im told


First open the hood of your car and check where the leak is coming. Thermostat gasket is one source but
it could also come the radiator, radiator hose, or the
water pump. Check all these items, and you can do
the repairs by replacing the defective parts. Except for
water pump that really needs a mechanic to replace the
bearings and the mechanical shaft seal.

Jeep Wrangler leaking coolant


IT IS THE WATER-PUMP. PLEASE DON'T WAIT FOR IT TO OVER-HEAT BECAUSE THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE, AND VERY COSTLY. PRICE A HEAD-GASKET JOB AND COMPARE IT TO THE COST OF A WATER PUMP. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE. BEST OF LUCK.
